R. Kelly Up Against Deadline, Still Hasn’t Paid Child Support | TMZ NEWSROOM TODAY

R. Kelly's dangerously close to heading right back to Cook County jail for failing to pay more than $160k in child support. Also, Kylie Jenner's not ready to take Khloe Kardashian's lead and open the door to forgiveness for her ex-bestie, Jordyn Woods … at least, not yet.

  1. He trying to cry victim he still gonna go to jail for a long time if they got Bill Cosby they will roof him

  2. They were pimping their daughters to him for a check. Poor black families giving their daughters away for a better lifestyle. They’re only talking now because they didn’t get the amount of money that they wanted.

  3. R. Kelly just put the final nail in his career Coffin That is the worst interview I have ever seen

    • +ken Williams Just because a person is shouting and crying doesn’t make that person guilty of any crime. I believed he had slept with underage before cause he married Aaliyah when she was 15 or 17, but as far as holding anyone against their will I don’t believe that part and if you believe that then you’re stupid also. All these girls have parents who can call the police at any time if they felt like their daughter is in any type of danger or abuse.

    • YES WE CAN come on dude stop defending that pedophile you know he’s guilty of all this You’re only defending him because he’s black if he was white you’re throwing him on the bus R. Kelly is guilty as hell and this interview made it worse

    • +YES WE CAN *So You Believe R Kelly Was Raping Underage Girls Just Not Holding Them Against Their Will…. Smfh*

    • Why didn’t his lawyer tell him NOT to do that interview…??? WHY? SMH…

  4. Frustration. That’s all I can say. Gayle wasn’t going about this interview as a journalist. So is his ex wife keeping him from seeing their kids because she hasn’t been paid? She is wrong for that. Child support is help but heffa you should be able to maintain because that money isn’t a replacement for a paycheck.

  5. It’s the remix to ignition
    Hot and fresh out the kitchen
    Mama rollin’ that body
    Got every man in here wishin’
    Sippin’ on coke and rum
    I’m like so what I’m drunk
    It’s the freakin’ weekend baby
    I’m about to have me some fun

  6. R Kelly’s defense attorney’s could not have authorized this foolishness..😒This was a really bad move on his part…🤦🏾‍♀️

  7. I like this man music. Wrong or right I need evidence for this seriously serious allegation before I judge.

  8. Based off the Joe rogan experience with dr Phil, what dr phil said would indicate that he’s not lying check out the video on how phil can tell who’s lying and who’s truthful
